    Thanks for all the info we just doubled up three and we will see what happens...There is no way to get at the box really to drill any holes it is very hard just to get at the screws that clamp the wires...

    Pipe ?, raceway ?

    I don't think he's using any type of conduit.

    Any hoot, I'd double check about doubling up in your cable clamps.

    Easier and faster now than doing it twice later.

    When derating wires, cable assemblies running through a hole are treated the same way as pipe fill. Grnd don't count for fill and neutral are dependant if they are considered current carrying conductor(ccc)or not. On a 120/240v system, a neutral in a 14/3 nmd cable is not a ccc but in a 14/2, the neutral does count as ccc. That's why you can run two 14/3 cable assemblies in a single hole. The ccc count is 4 so no deration needed. More inspectors think the maximum is a 14/2 + a 14/3, which is incorrect.
    Carefull what you aim for, Aim for nothing and you will achieve it with amazing accuracy.

    ive been putting 2 sets of 2 wire romex (with ground) wires in a knockout hole for over 28 years without any issues. Though for some time ive been using plastic romex connectors instead of the metal 2 screw connectors to prevent any problems. Now when it comes to 14/3 or 12/3 or the larger sets of romex, its one per hole.

    Actually, I'm surprised there's no more knockouts and yet still room for more breakers.

    The few panels I've messed with had enough knockouts to cover the number of breakers.
